My god! I can't believe they're still giving polio vaccinations. Polio was a real problem in 1840. In 2007, there were only 1700 cases worldwide.
I'd say enough already!
Just why do you think Polio has "nearly" been eradicated ??
DUH ? Do you think people getting the Polio Vaccinactions may have anything to do with the lessening of the Deadly and Crippling Disease ?
In countries where it is still considered epidemic is a problem because the people refuse to take the vaccine.
I had Polio and now have Post Polio Syndrome.
Belive me you don't want it or wouldn't want anyone els to get it.
I Got Polio in 1953 and so did alot of others.
Alot of people died and alot more would be dead if not for the discovery of the Vaccine.
The virus is still out there alive and well.
